CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels has introduced rigid, semi-flex discs for aggressive grinding applications. The new discs are made with a stiff phenolic resin fiberglass backing, which is engineered to be stronger than plastic or vulcanized fiber backings for more control when grinding corners and edges.
The new backing material allows the disc to be used without a backup pad and prevents the discs from deforming because of use, heat, or humidity. The discs, which can be used wet or dry, are available in 16-, 24-, and 36-grit sizes; Type 27 shape; and in 4.5, 5, and 7 in. dia. with 0.875-in. or 5/8-11 arbor holes.
